Most of the students are gone, but Bryn Mawr’s campus remains abuzz with construction projects and visitors.

The Smart Women, Strong Women project to renovate Schwartz Gymnasium continues on schedule with a targeted completion date of late August.

Sections of Taylor Hall are once again enveloped in scaffolding as the building undergoes roof and masonry repairs. New sidewalks and landscaping will also be provided. This is the second and final phase of a project that started last summer. The work on Taylor should be completed by the end of July.

Structural, masonry and bathroom repairs are taking place at Pembroke East. The work, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of August, includes the rebuilding of five window bays and the renovation of all bathrooms.

Wyndham Alumnae House is also undergoing a good deal of repair. In addition to interior and exterior painting, most of the windows on the original portion of the building are being replaced. Exterior painting and interior painting are place on the first floor. Targeted completion date is late August 2010.

Other projects include the creation of the Coombe Special Collections space in Canaday Library; renovation of the tea pantries in Radnor Hall; plumbing repairs and additional renovations of Erdman Hall; and landscaping improvements across campus.

Groups visiting Bryn Mawr’s campus in July and August will include summer camps for young athletes, dancers, aspiring magicians, and more, in addition to several gatherings of academics. High-school students and their families will visit campus July 23 and August 6 for the College’s two summer open houses.
